Hello All,
Well guys since my first positive ana test, I have had three negative ones.  Had the kidney Biopsy and got my results yesterday.  Rheumatologist and Kidney doc say it's not Lupus right now may be suspetable (sp.) to it in the future.
Bad news biopsy show both minimal change disease and IgA Neph. and proteinuria. Really, didn't evern know you could have more than one kidney disease at a time. Not sure what will happen now. After reading up on both the outcome is different for both.
Doctor started me on like 8 meds. Predinsone (highest dosage you can have), cholestrol meds, calucium, Fish Oils, Bloop Presussure Meds, nexium and low-dose asprin (blood clotting disroder).
Can anybody help me to wrap my mind around this? I have to go back in 4 weeks for blood testing and 24 hour urine sample. Really scared about the predinsone (haven't heard good things about the side effects).
Any advice is welcomed.  Thank you all for your support and I will be hanging around.

Hi, Happy to hear it's NOT Lupus right now, Hope they get the kidney working better after all this. Go to Google Look up Prednisone, It will explain alot better then we can word for word to get an Idea of what it's going to be like. Not ALL side affects happen to everyone sometimes. its a few sometimes its all. Hope that helped, ;)
